Genetic Risk Assessment and Counseling
Genetic Risk Assessment and Counseling Available Through STCC
Last year, members of the Cancer Care Team determined an increasing need for genetic counseling services in our community. STCC now offers two options for risk assessment and counseling services to physicians and patients in our community. Dr. Duane Superneau, Clinical Geneticist, is once again providing consultation to patients and families needing counseling services with clinics held the third Wednesday of each month. STCC has also contracted with Informed DNA to provide telephone counseling services so that participants can connect at a time convenient for them and other family members who might want to participate in the consultation. Who is appropriate for a risk assessment and counseling session? Concerns about a personal or family history of cancer or someone who was tested and received indeterminant results or results that need further explanation. Visits are covered by most insurance companies. To schedule an appointment or for more information, call the Oncology Nurse Navigators 985.898.4581.
